Foundation for Effective Leadership


Shape the leader you want to be and the future you want to have.


"Who are you? What matters to you? Why does that matter to your team?

An integral part of leadership is understanding all these things. But that isn’t a simple process. There is no roadmap. And resources for this stage of career and life are few and far between.

The Foundation for Effective Leadership Program is our flagship program specially designed to fill this gap.



"The course isn't just for entrepreneurs. It's for anybody looking to grow their career in a mindful way, with a strong vision and values that reflect you as a person and as a professional."



With awareness comes effective decision-making, a more inclusive leadership approach, and stronger receptiveness among team members. This program centers on an in-person, experiential practicum to develop essential leadership skills. Over 5 modules, the program is relevant, group-based, and face-to-face.

And therefore, it emphasizes building on your own experience, while also providing a support and learning network to help address challenges in real-time. The program is tailored to you, the individual participant, and creates deep awareness for emerging leaders.



NextGen Center is on a mission to foster transformational change for the next generation of leaders, companies, and communities through skills-based professional development.
